Forest health is very important in world global change issues. The problem such as air pollution, acid rain, forest fires, quality and quantity of water, and global climate change has affected the realization of a sustainable forest. Achievement of forest preservation in forest ecosystem, criteria and indicators had been widely formulated. Therefore, carbon analysis is significantly needed to figure the indicator of forest health. The aim of the research was to analyze the carbon as a forest health indicator in Protection Forest, Reg. 25. The data were collected through cluster plot based on Forest Health Monitoring (FHM) method. The formula for counting biomass within the tree was W = 0,11 x ρ x D2, 62, mean while under growth and litter biomass are gained from total dry weight. Carbon sink is based on conversion number; 0,5 out of total biomass number. The average of carbon stored in Protection Forest Reg. 25 is about 939,12 ton/ha. Carbon within the stands are contributed the most; 937, 43 ton/ha, litter carbon about 1,06 ton C/ha and undergrowth carbon is about 0,63 ton C/ha. Based on the analysis, carbon can be a health indicator of Protection Forest Register 25 with the category of poor, moderate, and good. Cluster plots 1 and 2 classified to good category (1,232.75 ton C/ha - 1744.13 ton C/ha), while cluster plots 3 and 4 classified to poor category (209.97 ton C/ha - 721.35 ton C/ha).
